    • Yeah, this one hurts but it sounds like the ruSSo-fertilizer took massive losses. I think we will get it back soon though but I’m worried about the civilians in the hands of the nazi fertilizer.

      I have updated this story, it looks like the defenders have stopped the Russian advance and retook control.
